    The fix;
    the springs/rod assembly that hold the tub have warn out and need replacing or if your cheap like me, stretch the springs out some more, they are compression springs. I drove all over trying to find replacements, no luck.

    Life hack. Those damn automatic paper towel dispensers. You know where you wave your hand and a 4" long paper towel rolls out. Pull up slightly not enough to tear it just enough to activate the switch wave again and more keep repeating until you have a paper towel large enough to dry your hands and not just one finger.

    Exact same damn thing, slightly different material. For us at work, the lens wipes are about a tenth of the price for quantity. Your mileage may vary depending on where you buy.

    ETA: Also, for folks like me who have an issue with oily skin and live in a hot and humid climate, the lens wipes are a perfect size to freshen up your face, neck, and behind the ears and such.

    Don't ever think that because I'm peaceful, that I've forgotten how to be violent.

    Using a cardboard cutout of a pronghorn antelope to drawn in a buck. Some antelope are very curious and weary prey, they are very quick too. This is a good trick to get a close up shot, even with the truck nearby they get him close. No shot was taken, they were testing the cardboard decoy.

    Fishing season is here, time to replace your fishing line on your favorite real. Here is a simple trick using a coffee can to hold the new spool of line while you crank on fresh line, easy peasy!
